On: Saturday, 11 Jan 2020
Venue: Away

Result: Drew 2 - 2

Scorers : Henry Johnson, Oliver Arnold

Notable performances: Henry Johnson, Josh Knee, James Douglas-Davis

After just one training session this was a good result by the year 7 'A' team in their first competitive football match at this school. Caldicott had some decent players and a good shape to them and at the end of the game a draw was probably a fair result.

Blue Coat settled into the game as the better of the two teams enjoying much possession but with few clear cut chances, though a free kick by James Douglas-Davis was close. Caldicott then took the lead though only for five minutes as Henry Johnson soon equalised. One each at half time.

Some reorganisation at the interval did not pay dividends as Caldicott soon regained the lead and looked like increasing it but for some sturdy defensive work led by Josh Knee. Finally as the game neared completion, a good break by Henry followed by a very unselfish pass allowed Oliver Arnold to finish well, 2 - 2. Much to work on but an encouraging start. Well done to all who played.
